FALLIABLE HUMANS!! #CelonasNuggets


“The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love and to be greater than our suffering.”
― Ben Okri


In recent times I concluded that perfect harmony can hardly be arrived at when we have constant internal turmoils stemming from grudges borne over something or even nothing at all.

A whole lot of times grudges stem from expectations placed on someone/something and when it’s not met, we begin the resentful spout and store up that senseless carbon in our minds and hearts. Even when we say that we have forgiven the person/situation, we keep a long list of records of all the shortfalls.

We have got to limit all expectations that would end up making us breed endless stupidity inside of us.
If we minimized our expectations from others and valuables, almost nothing would be a hindering factor to our ultimate reach in life, that way we leave room for pleasant surprises and also save ourselves that feeling of being let down.

An instance is our personal relationships. A lot of relationships would surely fail because we go into it with a long list of dos, don’ts and infernal expectations that would surely lead to no fruition.

Man is not GOD, but fallible humans! and would always remain as that regardless what anyone tags to their name. THEY REMAIN NOTHING BUT FALLIABLE HUMANS. You Hear!

This virtually applies to everything that we do. For instance you might have a nasty boss. Zero your mind down to the fact that he/she has issues that they are dealing with and they possibly don’t know how to be different.

Once your mind has accepted their contrary prickly nature, you go about your business as effectively as you can without letting the acid of annoyance and grudge build up inside you. Getting into differences with such people will only hurt you more, because the likelihood is that they may not understand, don’t care or are insensitive to your feelings.

Remember that you cannot change other people, but you can change yourself. Who knows, your balanced sense of self and disposition might actually serve as a source of inspiration for a whole lot of people.

No fear!

Oii Fam!!

Keep Moving!!






While we plan for the future (especially 2019);
we could aswell render less lipservice to the show of shame by the herdsmen and their president.
Perhaps we could do the same to the practitioners of mediocrity from the west. Especially that ugly one in ota

It’s certain from the recent trends in world politics compared to what we do here:
Most of our African leaders have always been fruit-picking, game-chasing wanderers and nomads.

Humanity has since moved on. It is our collective responsibility to rescue the left-behind from primitiveness, not to create an uncultured space for them within a fake civility.



For even the very wise cannot see all ends.   J.R.R. TolkienThe Fellowship of the Ring (The Lord of the Rings


…and his name is NNAMDI KANU

When he started. Many of us never took him seriously. We thought he was just another distraction in Nigeria. There has been agitations long before he came but his style was different from them all. His approach was different. He spoke from far away land but his voice was closer to us than the air that we breathe. 

Many have come from the window though maybe started sincerely but ended up crushed by the enemy either through oppression or guns or bribes. Many of us looked for a messiah before he showed up. We waited for that one that will prove himself clean and flawless, that will not betray our course. We knew we needed freedom but we never could tell how it will come until he showed up. 

When we started listening we were bullied by the forces of darkness but we hesitated. Many of us hid in secret places to listen to that resounding voice in an Igbo intonation from far away London. We believed but continued in doubt. We saw many lay down their lives and our confidence increased. We started investigating. We started asking questions. They told us his name was Nnamdi KANU. 

Our confidence increased the more. He made many boasts which time has proved to be prophecies. So now just like the scriptures told us “that any who prophesies and his words do not come to pass is a false prophet and should be disregarded” but all his prophesies came to pass and are still coming to pass.

He told us that now (at the time he said it) no body wants to talk about Biafra but that very soon they won’t be able to help it and everyone will talk about Biafra. Now it is happening.

He told us that by the time he finishes with Buhari that Buhari will run to Britain and never come back and now we are still looking for the man, he is yet to return.

How he was able to turn the whole world’s attention to his little home in Afara-Ukwu, Umuahia is still a mystery. 

Now if you don’t talk about Nnamdi KANU and Biafra it is one and the same like you not talking about news in Africa. 

The government of the zoo can’t help it, the world powers can’t stop it. The politicians of Igbo stock can’t fight it. It has become the most trending stuff in the region of Biafra (south south south East).

Biafra may not be a country in the world map today but it is obvious in the world now that Biafra is a country in the world’s space.

Biafra may not have her independence today but it is obvious no one not even the devil can stop the restoration of Biafra.

Though it started LIKE A JOKE but now Biafra lives in the hearts of millions so if you have ever thought of stopping it, sorry, it’s too late.

It is too late to kill a living Biafra. 

It is too late to stop the moving train.

It is too late!


Biafra is here!!!




You don’t really need words to express feelings #Celonarants


The amazing blogs I stumbled on that has left a huge impact on me and my continual push for a strong supportive community, one with a selfless will to joining hands with the ones stretching for a reach. All I have always promised is an onward and upward press for the top. As we look forward to having a great
year ahead, I would love to share something I wrote late year, that has really held me together; setting my sight on positives alone. It could also be your guide to personal developments or alter nonsense.

No one would ever settle to being a failure. Success is an accomplishment everyone seeks to attain. A chef, a painter, stock broker, dancer, whatever you are; the chances are, your plans for the future include achieving success in your given choice of career.
The mind of a deep thinker …or complete rubbish …boils down to interpretations and perceptions.

As we set up logistics to move this whole blogging thing to another “awkward and confusing” arena I thought it did be nice to drop 4 good nuggets from a book I just can’t take my eyes off.

…and here we go fam;

First, you are the architect of your own destiny. Every experience in your life–health, illness, poverty, wealth, failure, or success–is the result of actions or purposes you set in motion.

Second, you have creative power in your life because you can visualize what you want to achieve so clearly that it becomes imprinted on the subconscious mind–which then brings the dream to reality.

Third, you are a radiating power able to attract to yourself everything you want, providing that you are willing to pay the price

Fourth, you are “the building and directing power of your life.” There’s nothing that is–or that has been–which isn’t dependent on the power of the mind. When life presents you with a challenge, it is up to you to meet that challenge. Whether you fail or succeed is up to you and you alone.

#TheDissident as a whole project for the fall would be really inspiring; I shouldn’t brag about this 😉

Top of the week Africa; Obrigado!!



CONVICTIONS LATELY!! #TheDissident 21/04/2017

“Enthusiasm can help you find the new doors, but it takes passion to open them. If you have a strong purpose in life, you don’t have to be pushed. Your passion will drive you there.”
Roy T. Bennett




..and are they waxing real strong?

Lately, words like “disobedience” “rascal” “rebel” “self-reliant” “independent” have being practically thrown at me, like they literally see me headed doom’s way …and I am thinking, aren’t those the very words needed to sending any man to that “abysmal” point of stardom? Huh?

Well, I do care for my family, loved ones, well-wishers and hard-hitters as well.
I also do care about my happiness and long term relaxation in actualisations of dreams and goals, and with plenty of fulfilments attached to it. Would it be wrong to dream? I ask you silly naysayers. Would it?

I have sworn to choose to respect every codes of conduct and given laws that I “must” somehow abide by. but Hey!, I won’t be pulled by a leash to accepting every single code of conduct, even when I am sure they wouldn’t play an integral part in the nurture and growing of my set goals and ambitions to fruition.

Someone once said; “Every brother-man on earth is the architect of his own successes and failures.
But I state; “The failures I have solely acquired on my own and by my faults, could actually be the stepping stone to successes and realities no other man ever thought would come to the surface for all man to see.

I choose to stay strong, fight for life with highly inspired decisions, you could fault this decisions at your own peril. I promised myself I wouldn’t be a distraction to any man who has chosen to fight his way up the ladder of relevance in a given world of renewed craze and insanity.

My convictions are the oil that keeps the engine running, you could either join our crew-ship or abandon ship completely. No one, within this space we own, would ever fault us.

I choose to join the practitioners of only believers, who have chosen to live on regardless, heads up high in complete focus and anticipation.
All I need you to do when you stop by; drop your words of encouragement or just keep moving and act like this ones never existed to you. Either ways, let’s keep growing in peace and oneness and actualizations of set goals.

We are all humans and it’s true each one of us owns hard felt convictions. We should all be joining hands together to fight our demons, and fight alongside our angels, but if you think different, I would choose to allow you bask in the euphoria of your own thoughts, and whatever it has to offer.

What is certain is that; “some men aren’t meant to be happy always because they are meant to be great someday.”

If you call this “writing to make self justifications to sere stupidity”
I think you guessed right
I stay true to the source of inspiration and given experiences.

“No people and no part of a people shall be held against its will in a political association that it does not want.”
Ludwig von Mises, Nation, State, and Economy: Contributions to the Politics and History of Our Time

After the British Government represented by its ambassador to Nigeria, made a statement where they said ‘They’ll not allow Nigeria to divide under their watch’; Femi Fani–Kayode, the former director of media and publicity to former President Goodluck Jonathan, wrote:

…Meanwhile, just as their counterparts are doing in Nigeria, the racial integrationists, the champions of globalization, the apostles of a new world order and the advocates of mass migration continue to test the waters by attempting to place obstacles in the path of the true believers and ethnic nationalists all over the world. For example Theresa May, the British Prime Minister, suggested that this was not the time to discuss the issue of a new referendum for Scottish independence just two weeks ago.

Thankfully Alex Salmon, the former leader of the Scottish Nationalist Party, responded to her in an eloquent manner by assuring her that if she continued talking that way her words and attitude would actually guarantee Scottish independence rather than prevent it. His warning is appropriate and timely. Again just last week, the President of the European Commission, Jeanne Claude Junker, who is one of the world’s most rabid and diehard integrationists and globalists, said that President Donald Trump’s stated desire to see “more Brexits” and to “witness more countries leave the European Union” was “provocative and inappropriate” and that in retaliation the European Union may consider calling on states like Ohio and Texas to secede from the United States of America.

Nigel Farage MEP, the former leader of the British United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) and one of the most formidable and respected nationalists in the world today, jumped into the ring the following day with a swift and devastating response. He said that Junkers’ words were inappropriate and misplaced because the United States of America came together as a consequence of consensus whilst the European Union was brought together by fiat and compulsion. He also made the point that, unlike America, which is a transparent and functional democracy, the European Union is run by a group of faceless and unelected bureaucrats and officials at the European Commission in Brussels. Farage is absolutely right. His was indeed a beautiful response.

Both Salmon and Farage have spoken the minds of millions of people all over the world including Nigeria. The bottom line is that you cannot compel a people to remain part of any nation unless they choose to be in that nation and you cannot deny them the right of self-determination and the freedom of choice and association. Thankfully that message is spreading. The forces of integration and globalisation are clearly on the ropes in today’s fast-changing world just as they are in Nigeria.

Nothing can stop the quest for self-determination or the glorious march of the ethnic nationalists. A couple of weeks ago in an essay titled “The Hausa Fulani, The Yoruba and The Slaughter in Ile-Ife” (Part 2) yours truly wrote the following: “The right to take pride in our ethnicity and invoke the principle of self-determination cannot be denied. We reject the concept of globalisation and the enthronement of a new world order. We reject the concept of an artificial, man-made, multi-cultural, multi-religious, mongrel mega-nation that is made up of ethnic and religious incompatibles. We reject the notion that we must bury our ethnicity, forget our differences, arrest our development, discard our values and enthrone the idea of a strange and complicated hybrid nation where we are expected to live with and accommodate those that hate our faith, despise our people, scorn our values and that rape, maim and kill our loved ones and compatriots in the name of religion, conquest, land, cows and cattle.

The truth is that no force in hell or on earth can stop the rise and establishment of the sovereign state of Biafra, Oduduwa or any other ethnic nation that will one day be carved out of what is presently known as Nigeria”. I believe that these words are relevant and prophetic. Those that do not see the wisdom in restructuring Nigeria have guaranteed her future dissolution. Yet sadly this is a fact that appears to be completely lost on both the British and French Ambassadors given their simplistic and asinine contributions to what is essentially a very complicated, multi-layered, multifaceted, problematic, volatile and dangerous long-standing debate which borders on the nationality question in Nigeria. May the counsel of the Lord stand in our nation and may His name be glorified. (TO BE CONTINUED).

“From whence shall we expect the approach of danger? Shall some trans-Atlantic military giant step the earth and crush us at a blow? Never. All the armies of Europe and Asia…could not by force take a drink from the Ohio River or make a track on the Blue Ridge in the trial of a thousand years. No, if destruction be our lot we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of free men we will live forever or die by suicide.”
Abraham Lincoln


After the British Government represented by its ambassador to Nigeria, made a statement where they said ‘They’ll not allow Nigeria to divide under their watch’; Femi Fani–Kayode, the former director of media and publicity to former President Goodluck Jonathan, wrote:


In 1941 during the course of the Second World War, the most famous alumna of my old school Harrow and the Prime Minister of Great Britain, Sir Winston Churchill, said the following words to General Bernard Montgomery,  who was also known as the “Spartan General”, the hero of the Battle of Alamein, the Commander of the famous British Desert Rats and the Field Marshall of the British Armed Forces. He said,

“Monty, never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy”.

These are powerful and inspiring words from one of the greatest leaders that the world has ever known.

Today I share those words and sentiments with every Nigerian who yearns for freedom from the bondage of ethnic slavery and religious bigotry and who believes that the only way forward is to restructure or redefine Nigeria.

Those of us that have these noble aspirations will “never yield to force” and we will “never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy”.  Like Shakespeare’s Macbeth we shall be “bold, bloody and resolute” and if necessary we shall “fight until the flesh be hacked from our bones”.

No matter what comes our way we shall be encouraged, we shall walk tall, we shall stand firm and we shall stand strong.

This is because our cause is just and even though our enemies may have today, we know that tomorrow belongs to us. Again even though the night may be dark, we know that joy comes in the  morning!

Whatever the powers that be in Empire Nigeria throw our way we shall not bow and we shall not be cowed.

Like our Lord and Saviour and Commander in Chief, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, Son of the Living God once did on the cross two thousand years aģo, for the glory that lies ahead, we shall take their taunts and insults, bear their horrendous persecution, endure their malevolence and wickedness and despise the shame.

We shall stand our ground, hold our heads up high, fight a good fight and, by the grace of the Living God, in the end, we shall prevail.

We draw strength from the fact that we are not alone in this struggle. Others that have also suffered injustice and the most brutal form of subjugation and repression from their oppressors have similar hopes and aspirations as ours.

Consider the nation of Scotland. Her people are yearning to have another referendum on whether or not to leave the United Kingdom in 2018.

When Nicola Sturgeon, the leader of the Scottish Nationalist Party, announced their intention I did not hear Theresa May, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, throw insults and threats at her or accuse her of treason.

I did not hear the French government or the French Ambassador to the UK telling the Scots that they would never be allowed to have their way and that they should perish the thought of Scottish independence.

Yet when it comes to the affairs of Nigeria it appears that everyone feels that they can tell us what to do.

For example Denys Gauer, the French Ambassador to Nigeria, recently said that those that were agitating for Biafra were indulging in an exercise in futility and that they would never achieve their dream or ambition. What a sad testimony and sorry tale this is.

It appears that the man knows little about the deep resolve of those who are fighting for their freedom and frankly he needs to learn a thing or two about the history of his own country before he pontificates to us about ours.

His unsolicited counsel is both misguided and inappropiate and we completely reject it.
The French people, since the days of the Great Revolution of 1789 and bold leaders and reformere like Maximilien Robespierre, Jean-Paul Marat and years later, the greatest of them all, Napolean Bonaparte, have always prided themselves on being the friends of the subjugated and the deprived.

They have always been the champions of liberty and freedom. They have always resisted oppression and tyranny. They must not stop now.

To make matters worse Paul Arkwright, the British Ambassador to Nigeria, threw his hat into the ring as well and said that the United Kingdom “would not allow” Nigeria to break up.

Such ill-conceived pomposity, self-serving clap trap and what the great writer and historian David Icke describes as the “arrogance of ignorance” has no place in the post-colonial world.

Simply put Arkwright, and all other “Englanders” that think like him, ought to remind himself that Nigeria is no longer a British colony.

In any case given the consequences of Brexit and the strong agitation for Scottish, Welsh and even Northern Irish independence it appears to me that the British Ambassador would do better by trying to ensure that the United Kingdom itself remains together rather than attempt to tell us what we “will be” or “not be” allowed to do in Nigeria.

He would also do well to remember that the days of “Rule Brittania” are long over, that the “Great” has been taken out of “Britain” and that the evil amalglamation and unworkable contraption that his forefathers forced on us in 1914 is fast unravelling as a consequence of the hideous atrocities, sheer cruelty and sociopathic meglomania of those that they imposed on us as our internal colonial masters.

The bottom line is that the destiny of this nation will be determined by the people of Nigeria and no-one else.

Whether the Ambassador of France, the Ambassador of the United Kingdom or anyone else likes it or not the world is fast changing.

The philosophy, ethos and culture of ethnic nationalism is gaining ground and pride of place. Nothing terrifies the hegemonists, the internal colonial masters and the ‘born to rule’ conquerors in Nigeria more than this because Yoruba, Igbo and Ijaw nationalism coupled with the quest for southern and Middle Belt emancipation is their worse nightmare.

The glorious march of ethnic nationalism, the desire to break the yoke of internal colonialism, slavery and bondage, the agitation for self-determination and the quest for a fundamental restructuring of Nigeria or, failing that, the establishment of new and independent nation states to replace her is at an all-time high.

And so is the determination of the various ethnic groups and nationalities to resist oppression, subjugation and tyranny and defend and protect the interests of their people.

If anyone doubts that they should speak with the Oodua Peoples Congress (OPC), the Oodua Liberation Movement (OLM), the Oodua Nationalist Coalition(ONAC), the Movement For The Actualisation Of The Sovereign State Of Biafa (MASSOB), the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the Ijaw Youth Congress (IYC), the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta (MEND), the Middle Belt Youth Forum (MBYF), the Southern Kaduna People’s Union (SOKAPU), the Ombatse Militia Group (OMG), the Tiv Cultural and Development Association (TCDA), the Berom Militias, the Tiv Militias, the Zaar militias, the Jukun militias, the Ngas Militias, the Nigerian Christian Falange (NCF), the Sons of Gideon (SG) and numerous other groups that are not only well-motivated, well- organised and well-equipped but also highly focused and committed to their cause and ready to defend the interests of their people no matter the price that may have to be paid.

I sincerely hope and pray that it never happens because I deplore violence and I am a man if peace but if push ever comes to shove and there is a showdown, the Nigerian Armed Forces and security agencies, the Fulani militias and herdsmen and Boko Haram will have a very hard time containing the fury and power of any or all of these groups.

I say this because it is not the size of the dog in the fight that counts but rather the size of the fight in the dog!  (TO BE CONTINUED).
